For the 13th straight year since 2008, Cypress Bank has presented a high-end MacBook laptop for the use of Northeast Texas Community College honors students. This year’s Cypress Bank Scholar is Cade Bennett. He is the son of Mark, and Cerena Bennett of Naples. A graduate of Paul Pewitt High School, Bennett was a varsity athlete, and member of the National Honor Society. With theatre experience as well, he assumed the star role this past summer in the 2020 film project of Honors Northeast at NTCC. Cypress Bank Vice President, Billie Sue Hanson, of the Lone Star Branch, presented Bennett with this gift (above). Cypress Bank has five locations in Pittsburg, Mount Pleasant, Lone Star, and Commerce.
